I'M BORED (my first children's book!) launches TODAY

Can't believe the day is finally here! It's been two years since a rejection turned into a book contract with Simon & Schuster Books For Young Readers to illustrate Michael Ian Black's I'M BORED.

I've updated the I'M BORED In The Wild photo gallery with more reader photos! I invite you all to send in your own photos: here are the guidelines and info about how to submit.

You can find more info about the book, related resources for teachers and librarians, photos, sketches of the book in progress, tips for young writers and illustrators, an I'M BORED In The Wild photo challenge, comics and much more: I'M BORED Scrapbook.

Hooray, Debbie! I just read the amazing story of how this project came to be...on the heels of rejection! You are a wonderful example of an SCBWI success story. I'm crossing my fingers your book sells bunches.

I'm a little late to the party, but I just read this to a friend's kid over the holidays, and it was a favorite of his, and he loved saying all the "BORING"s while I read the rest. This book is a delight! Congrats.The illustrations are perfect!
